In quilting workshops conducted by Tahereh Sheerazie in Balakot, Abbotabbad, Ghazi, Shikrpur, and Quetta, women artisan members of Sabah Pakistan were challenged to create what interests them, moves them, whether objects, figures, patterns or stories with fabric and thread, ultimately quilted. This challenge initially surprised, but excited them.
Tahereh will speak on the process of allowing them to do their own thing, never intervening, except for the demands that it be their own, and ensure quality in the finish,how this exercise in self expression was for them a deep dive into what they and their colleagues were about, a communal bonding and a transformational experience in gaining self confidence.
